Glossary of gun related terms

I like this. I think it is going to be a great asset.

Ok, I've added the COM term, thanks.

And I'd like to get an opinion on the Ammo Head Stamps. Should I just list them alphabetically with all the other terms or just create a page that lists all the Head Stamps together and it would be its own dropdown under the Resources tab?

Sheeple: recommended for non-demeaning inclusion into USA Carry's 'Glossary of Gun Related Terms'.
Derived from 'sheep': mammal, food-supply/meat, sheepish, simple, flock, soft, followers, herd, domesticated, ad nauseum.
Co-joined with: 'People': Humans, humanity, UNARMED & anti-gun anything.
Meronym: individual, mortal, soul, etc.
(Kind/accurate) Street colloquialisms: 'Chumps', 'push-overs', 'dumbos', 'suckers', 'targets', 'hits', 'Joe/Jill Public', 'Roll-overs', etc.
For site usage: "Persons/adults who make up the majority of U.S. law-abiding citizens who assume 911 is their own personal security service offering instant responses 24/7. Ultra-anti-gun, pacifists with moral objections to the use of self-defense. Those who lack the courage to even attempt to prevent crime or danger from decending upon them, those they love or anything they own. Easy prey for any criminal and the first to cry foul when they become a statistic of violent or property crime."
Proposed for USA Carry common usage:

S: Shortsighted.
H: Helpless.
E: Elementary.
E: Elusive.
P: Patronizing.
L: Lazy.
E: Empty.

If there are any better and less offensive ways to scrabble-up this word, please slap them up here for LUKEM's review and maybe inclusion into a word used VERY often amongst gun owners, CC-types, USA Carry patrons, military, LEO's and (BFD) me for the last 1/4 century!

I've added the ammo head stamps to the Resources dropdown as its own page.

I also added the Sheep term but with a less "in your face" definition but still getting the point across:
Sheep - A group of people who lack the capacity for careful consideration, imagination, or individual thought, who thusly go with group and allow god awful trends and events to unfold and make us all miserable.

New Term - "Mall Ninja"

A term used in forums to mean an unexperienced and enthusiastic weapon(usually a firearm)owner who pretends to be a seasoned operator. The phrase came about as a result of an over the top character in a famous satirical thread.

This has been added!
I just converted the glossary over to a new module that looks and works better. You can also submit terms right into that module instead of posting them here.

I just finished setting up the Ammo Head Stamps and Bullet Legend in the same kind of format.

Suggested new term: Obamination. The wilful process of disarming the U.S. public who voted for the man who will turn non-compliant gun-owning, lawful-citizens into criminals by appointing like-minded judges U.S. wide; stage one of total control of people who have now lost the right to bear arms in protection of themselves, their loved ones and their property, in the absence of police, or in their failure to respond to an emergency in time to prevent or control it. Stage 2: arming and training civilian law officers with military style weapons to force compliance [or death] against those who disobey the (now abolished) 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, leading to a final solution: total disregard for that now obsolete blue-print for forming a new nation out of chaos (1776) and rewriting it in-toto to make it a set of ever-changing mandates/presidential decrees that states the only power to affect political change is not by the vote you cast, but in the rounds-per-minute a NWO law-agent's full-auto weapon can empty into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators, or political dissidents. Ombamination: the promise of 'change' U voted for that turns U into the ultra-compliant allowed to live in internal semi-captivity citizenry who serves only the Executive branch of a neofascist dictatorship, or dies by it's hands.
